Do you struggle to get settled on your pillow at night? Whether it’s finding it too soft, too hard, too warm, too cold, or simply not quite the right size, finding the perfect pillow can be a challenge. Following on from their acclaimed mattress, Casper have designed what they think is the perfect pillow for everyone. But how well does it hold up?
Depending on what you’re looking for this may be the pillow of your dreams , or it might just be a disappointment. To start with, it’s quite a high pillow – the fact it’s made up of two different pillows means if you tend to like lying flat, it might not be for you. The cover is made of a lovely percale weave, making sure the fibers from inside don’t get out, and there’s a decent airflow. This is great if you need your pillow to stay feeling cool all night. However, it’s a plain color, so you’re likely to end up putting a case on it and possibly losing this bonus.
In terms of support, it’s a nice mix of softness and strength – the inner core makes sure you don’t sink right through, whilst the outer fluff makes sure it’s still comfortable. This ‘best of both’ approach is great, but may not suit you if you prefer either extreme. This is an ongoing thing to note about the Casper pillow – it’s designed to suit everyone, but that means it might actually not suit you! However, there is a good chance it will as it is exceptionally good at maintaining its shape.
This means that if it does suit you, it won’t drop overnight and leave you uncomfortable in the morning. The important thing to note is that there is a 100 day guarantee on the product – and with free delivery and returns, you could definitely test this out and send it back if it’s not for you as you’ve got nothing to lose.
Two Pillows In One
The Casper Pillow is made up of two pillows in one – a firm inner core, and a soft outer shell. This means you get the best of both worlds, getting a good amount of support without sacrificing comfort to do so.
Designed for all Sleepers
Lots of pillow sell themselves as being designed for a certain type of sleeper, but given how often we move around in our sleep this can lead to discomfort in the middle of the night. Instead, Casper approached the problem differently, designing a pillow that suits all styles – meaning you won’t wake up when you shift position!
Always the Cool Side
The outer covering is 100% cotton, and it’s woven in a particular style – percale. This means there’s a good amount of airflow possible, preventing the heat buildup that can happen with some pillows. Simply put, it means you’ll always be on the cool side of the pillow.
Easy to Wash
As mentioned, the Casper pillow is made up of two parts – and this makes it much easier to wash. You simply separate them out, put them both in the washing machine, dry them, and pop it back together. Much easier than trying to manage washing all the fluff at once.
